    Power of attorney query 10th May 18 at 9:48 AM
    I'm about to have the lasting power of attorney conversation with my parents but I have one question which is not clear. Does a separate LPA need to be set up for both parents individually even though they are married or does a single application cover both parents?

    And if you donít already have your own in place sort that out at the same time.

    I would recommend that each LPA appoints at least 2 attorneys with the ability to act jointly and severally. We have 3 attorneys, each other and our 2 children.
